Description XD Falcon Interceptor 351 4 Spd Race Car Opt 36 GT ESP

Genuine 351 4 Spd 1982 XD Police Interceptor, Highway Patrol Falcon. It still has its Dealer Service books from when it was delivered new to the NSW Police Force. It has been turned into a "Production Series" race car and as such has a CAMS log book and a CAMS roll cage and all the bits to required to race. As it has not raced since 2006 some items may need to be upgraded to comply with current regs, mainly small items. It is a hoot to drive and feels like a big go cart. A note worth mentioning at this point, it has not been crashed and is mainly original paint. Rust is not an issue although it is fairly old and may have small holes in usual areas. Despite its many modifications if your desire was to return it to its former glory in uniform, that is not to difficult as it has not been butchered. Most of the stuff is bolt on and the cage can be ground out without causing to much disturbance. Production series means basically stock so it runs all its original drive-line and suspension mounts.
As a race car it is fun and goes, handles and stops well. All the things to make it strong, safe and reliable have been done. It cost allot to set up and all the detail things have been done. It is not an uncontrollable beast as ran in production class and despite having a blue printed and well built engine it was racing as a stock 351 XD ESP as per CAMS log book.
This could be put back on the road as is without too much trouble as everything works, it has almost full interior, its not loud through its 3" single system and purrs almost as quietly and smoothly as a Fairlane. The only street going issue is its camber (adjustable) and it runs a spooled diff with is not ideal on the street but great on the track. In effect you could register it and drive to and from the track.
It has all the typical Interceptor items like factory tramp rods, 16-1 Steering, 3/8 fuel line and what ever else they had from factory. The drive-line is matching number 351 warm ($8k rebuild) and pulls hard, a close ratio single rail and spooled 4 pinion BW Diff. All hardened gears in box and diff. Has quite a few spares and a spare set of wheels. The suspension is adjustable Bilstein shocks and uprated springs so is very stiff. The brakes are factory calipers with braided lines and expensive pads. Stops very well. Autometer instruments etc. If you want to go allot faster it will be easy to upgrade the cam and carb as it was built for higher performance and it will go much harder. It goes fast enough to scare the average punter and has never let me down on the track. It requires very little maintenance and just goes and goes. Definitely not hard on tyres or brakes. Very cheap motor-sport, will need tyres soon and that's about it.
This car offers allot as it is a collectible classic, a serious race car or for fun and can be put on the road now or restored to original 351 Falcon GL or Interceptor in the future.
Can include all the gear to suit 6 - 6.2 Ft tall person all fairly new. I had to tick the race car driver off the list, which i now have and someone else can enjoy being a racer and scaring themselves.
Thanks for looking.
